Unsurprising for China, there's a thriving kidnapping business of young boys 76,000 last year alone to families looking for a son. One such victim used Google Maps to locate the only landmark he remembered two bridges to find his real parents 23 years after he was taken.
Luo says he never gave up hope that he would one day be reunited with his biological parents. "Every day before I went to bed, I forced myself to relive the life spent in my old home," he told Fujian?s Strait News.
"Memories of home, in front of a small river...I am wearing a red sweater embroidered with a white swan that mother knit me," he recalled. Luo saved that sweater for many years, but when he was 13 years old, his home collapsed, erasing the only tangible memory he had of his family.
Throughout his adulthood, one particular memory stuck with Luo - his hometown had two bridges. Lucky for him, that was all the information he needed.
